In data transmission systems which include error detection/correction circuits of the Cyclic Redundance Check (CRC) type, the transmitter serially transmits each block of data while simultaneously processing the data using a selected N-bit CRC generator, and then transmits the resulting N-bit CRC polynomial to complete a "Frame". At the receiver, each Frame is continuously processed by an identical CRC generator. After the last bit in the Frame is processed, the remainder polynominal R(x) is compared against a constant remainder polynomial C(x). If the two polynomials are identical, there was no error in the Frame.
